THE WOMAN, THE MYTH, THE CELEBRANT
My name is Rebecca, or Bec, or Becky… any variant you’re most comfortable with (although Rebecca is what Mum calls me when she's angry).
I have an honours degree in law, a degree in communication, I'm foster carer of rescue animals, woman of many interests, professional third wheel (celebrant) and NSW Justice of the Peace.
I was born in 1993 (you do the math), I grew up in Raymond Terrace and now reside in Newcastle. I am a fur-mother to two rescue dogs (Eddie and Gus), two rescue cats (Audrey and Ned), and a foster mother to a variable number of rescue animals at any one time... go check out @theedfiles on instagram for cuteness updates.
I love dogs, gardening, fixing the never-ending issues in my 1950's house, halloumi and pickles, watching strange documentaries (or getting into an obscure youtube funnel), being 6ft tall, taking photos and doing other creative things, growing my hair and cutting it short again, dogs, floral dresses. I'm a homebody who likes to make my own fun and I can definitely talk too much about subjects that I'm passionate about.
My "day job" is with a state government department in policy and law reform. I love my job, because I get to serve people, and humans are just so darn fascinating!
I have no plans to quit my day job, and I'm in way too deep with my animal rescuing at this point. Because of this, I only perform a limited number of ceremonies per year (and I definitely only do one per day!).
I'm not in the business of booking as many ceremonies as possible. I'm a marriage celebrant because I enjoy the work. Becky Married Me is my labour of love, my hobby... you could say side-hustle (but I'm not much of a hustler tbh).
I'm actually a very rare breed of marriage celebrant, as I'm not married myself! This means you won't get any strong opinions or advice on marriage from me - I listen to what marriage means to YOU. I'm there to lead your ceremony, tell your love story and do all the boring paperwork-y-legal-bits. You do you... Boo.
Importantly, Becky Married Me is an inclusive space. Sexuality and gender diversity is welcome here, as are all (legal) ages, cultures, backgrounds and abilities. I am an open minded, non-judgemental and very flexible person. I know it can bring a sigh of relief to some couples to know this off the bat.
At the risk of this becoming a personal essay, I invite you to go ahead and check out my videos, client reviews and social medias. Head to my Services page to suss out how this all works.
